Fazza marked UAE Flag Day by sharing an amazing tribute towards the country’s leaders with a very clever flag arrangement.
Sheikh Hamdan sets up a stunning display
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, lovingly known as Fazza to many, set up a stunning visual display of UAE flags as a tribute to two of the country’s respected leaders. The video he shared to his Twitter feed showed a gradually developing picture, created with flags, of the faces of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
Sheikh Mohammed speaks proudly of the nation
UAE Flag Day falls each year on 3rd of November, marking the anniversary of Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan becoming the president back in 2004. It is a day to celebrate and remember the founding fathers of the UAE and show allegiance to the flag. Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum spoke of his pride for the country and its citizens at a flag raising ceremony in Downtown today.
“Today we have simultaneously raised the UAE flag with thousands of our workforce teams across all our institutions. It was lifted in our hearts then into the sky…’Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
رفعنا اليوم علم الاتحاد مع الآلاف من فرق عملنا في كافة مؤسساتنا في وقت واحد … ارتفع في القلوب فارتفع في السماء … رفعنا سقف طموحاتنا .. فارتفعت أعلامنا في كل مكان .. وارتفعت رؤوس مواطنينا فخرا بوطنهم … سيبقى علم الاتحاد شامخاً خفاقاً عاليا بهمة وعزم واخلاص أبناء الاتحاد.. pic.twitter.com/J5QXCi7J66— HH Sheikh Mohammed (@HHShkMohd) November 3, 2019
